It is so long since I heard
from you, but when I read a
good poem of yours, I want to tell you of it.
Your sonnet in Scribner pleases me.
Do you know a Miss Reese as a
poet? She is beating us all - her
poem in July Lippincott is beautiful
"Rachel." I send you something
about our old duds, people may think
we are well off, but we are not.
Stoddard grows feeble slowly, he is un-
able to go about but little, I hang on
with a little more vigor. I want to hear
about [Larry, Harry ?] what he is doing - My son
is very busy with theatrical work
But the "ten strike" has not come yet
We go next week to our usual hotel at
Sag Harbor. How well I remember
our pleasant visit to the Maples.
